Nope. And Nope.

First, Honda spent a lot of money to figure out where to set the VTEC point at. Leave it there.

Second, DOHC sound louder because both the intake and exhaust sides open up. The SOHC only open up the intake side. Sorry, your stuck with what you have unless you want to swap a DOHC in there. An intake will help a bit, but nothing like what you are wanting I dont think.

Not on an untuned ECU.
